Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2007 BMW X5 Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 31,000 miles


After putting parking brake on BMW X5 2007, tried to release parking brake. System displayed parking brake malfunction. Was unable to drive the car until a BMW assist supervisor told me that I need to manually release by pulling a cable in the trunk of a car. After searching online it seems to be a common problem with this car. I don't feel safe driving a car that has malfunction brakes.
